Role in the KNI
Evan is the Nanofabrication Process Engineer for The Kavli Nanoscience Institute (KNI) at the California Institute of Technology. Evan joined the KNI through Waterloo's renowned co-op program, where he works independently and alongside KNI staff on nanofabrication process recipe development, characterization and documentation across various areas of the Lab, including: reactive-ion etching (RIE), electron beam lithography (EBL), chemical vapor deposition (CVD), among others.
Evan is a fourth year undergraduate student at the University of Waterloo where he studies Nanotechnology Engineering. He has microfabrication cleanroom experience working on equipment and techniques such as: photoresist, RIE, PEVCD, AFM, SEM, ellipsometry, etc. from previous positions held at the Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics and Display Systems, NAV Canada, and Centra Industries (a division of PCC Aerostructures).
